When Rebecca was 7 years old she was asked what she wanted to be when she grew up. Her answer: A lawyer...or a baker. Skip forward a few years and after those two ideas seemed less fun and far too much hard work, filmmaking became the obvious choice! After studying Film and Television at Nottingham University, Rebecca moved to London to pursue a career in the film Industry. She has worked her way up the production ladder and now works on a variety of content including online, digital, commercial, television and short film. OPERATOR is Rebecca's first short film as Producer, and she is now looking forward to finding her next film project.
